VIENTIANE – Việt Nam’s National Assembly (NA) will work with the Vietnamese Government and Lao partners to carry out the Lao NA House project whose construction began in Vientiane yesterday, said a top legislator.
NA Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân made the promise while visiting General Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party and State President Bounnhang Volachith.
Ngân went to Laos to attend the ground-breaking ceremony of the Lao NA House, a gift donated by the Communist Party of Việt Nam, State and people to the neighbouring country.
She noted the fruitful development of ties and cooperation between the two countries, especially the success of the meeting between the two Politburos in January 2017 and the 39th meeting of the Việt Nam-Laos Inter-Governmental Committee in February 2017, and the exchange of visits by senior leaders.
Việt Nam is preparing for the upcoming visit by Party Secretary and State President Bounnhang Volachith to attend activities wrapping up the Việt Nam-Laos Solidarity and Friendship Year 2017, she said.
The Vietnamese legislature will also work with its Lao counterpart to encourage agencies to deploy agreements reached by senior leaders of the two countries and outcomes of the two aforementioned meetings, while preparing for the next meetings of the Politburos and the Inter-Governmental Committee in 2018, the top legislator said.
The legislatures will also exchange legislative experiences, and team up with concerned agencies to increase supervision over joint projects to make co-operation more efficient, particularly in economy, trade and investment.
Ngân called on Laos to create the best possible conditions for overseas Vietnamese to work and study in Laos, consider reducing fees for procedures and services, and taxes for Vietnamese, and employ more Vietnamese labourers in Vietnamese-invested or joint projects.
For his part, Volachith thanked Việt Nam for its support to Laos during the country’s struggle for national liberation and the present cause of national construction and development.
He lauded the valuable assistance of the Vietnamese Party, State and people to Laos in constructing the Lao NA House, a symbol of the special solidarity between the two Parties, Governments, legislatures and people.
Later the same day, Ngân and her entourage left Laos, concluding her visit to the country. — VNS
